İKSV Alt Kat, in collaboration with the Istanbul Design Biennial and Graphic Designers Professional Organisation (GMK), is implementing the Camekân project, a public space production for young designers whom are either university students or new graduates under the age of 26.
Within the scope of the project realised with the support of the Istanbul Development Agency (ISTKA), the six square meter display case located on the facade of the İKSV Alt Kat: Learning and Interaction Space will transform into a design and production area during March 2019 – March 2020.
The designs selected by the selection committee after the open calls are displayed publicly for a one-month period per design in the showcase on the front of the IKSV Alt Kat.
The first stage of the Camekân project started in March 2019 and was completed in July 2019. The second stage of the project will take place between September 2019 – March 2020.
